MOCA Cleveland hosts the exhibition, Alexis Rockman: The Great Lakes Cycle. Organized by Grand Rapids Art Museum, the exhibition is Rockman’s most ambitious body of work to date. Rockman, an acclaimed painter and environmental activist, creates ecologically-focused works that seduce and provoke with equal verve. Blending extensive research, diverse techniques, and site-specific materials like sand or soil, Rockman’s paintings document history while also imagining future environments.
MOCA Cleveland presents the first major US solo museum exhibition of Aleksandra Domanović (b. 1981, Novi Sad, Yugoslavia). Domanović’s research-based practice pays particular attention to the role of specific individuals within recent and historic developments at the intersections of science and technology, often emphasizing the underrepresented role of women. The show will include new commissions together with selections from Domanović’s recent video, sculpture, and installation work.
As the inaugural recipient of Toby’s Prize—a biennial award made possible by Toby Devan Lewis, philanthropist and a founding board member of MOCA Cleveland—Sondra Perry (1986, Perth Amboy, NJ) will have her first solo exhibition in a United States museum at MOCA Cleveland in the spring of 2019.
